Popular Mechanics Workshop: Miter Saw Fundamentals: The Complete Guide

Woodworkers trust Popular Mechanics to give them the information they need—and the Workshop series, written by respected DIY author Rick Peters, has proven invaluable. Each title covers a single tool in depth, with photos and exploded views, instructions, charts, and sidebars. This new entry covers the popular miter saw—a relatively new piece of equipment that has become a must-have on every job site and woodworking shop. That’s no surprise: it covers a wide variety of tasks with great precision. Peters helps woodworkers identify which saws and accessories best fit their needs; teaches basic and advanced techniques; and shows how to make jigs and fixtures that expand the tool’s capabilities. Attractive projects include a simple desk frame, beveled tray, and end table.

For someone who had never used a miter saw before this is a great book...but for those of you who know how to use a miter saw this book is a waste of time... I had never used a miter saw before so this book was great help for me, this book is for people who have no idea what a miter saw is. Highly recommended for the newbie but not so much for anyone that knows how to turn a miter saw on.

For those who have major problems with miter cuts this book is about as comprehensive as it gets. Great illustrations and insturctions for beginners and intermediates. Easy to read and understand and I recommend it highly.

This is a book loaded with information for both the novice and seasoned user of miter saws. This book is worth reading and keeping as a resource for cutting all types of miter and compound miters. My only concern is that they seemed overly in love with the Bosch brand. They were out of date for the Makita brand's option and the book is not that old.I do reccommend it however for the reasons above. Good price and fast delivery.Makita LS1013FL 15 Amp 10-Inch Dual Bevel Compound Sliding Miter Saw with Laser and Fluorescent Light

was planning to buy a chop saw, and decided to find out what i was getting into. this helped a lot. if you are a home woodworker and so need to learn on your own, try this excellent resource.

Very good book for beginner miter saw users. You will learn how to "Safely" operate the saw and that is very important.
